Synthesis of Traffic Signal Timing for the Highway Capacity Manual Planning Analysisby Mahesh Pethe, Univ of Florida, Gainesville, United States,

Abstract: The 1985 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) provides a technique to analyze the operation of signalized intersections. The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) is a microcomputer package that faithfully implements the HCM. The HCS is rapidly becoming a standard for analyzing signalized intersections. When planning future intersections, in order to use the HCM operational analysis, the complete signal timing plan must be synthesized from volume and geometric data. A task force of the Transportation Research Board recommended a procedure that enables the traffic engineer to quickly analyze aignalized intersections.
